What is COVID-19’s Impact on Surrogacy?
Both intended parents and surrogate mothers have been struggling with the turmoil COVID-19 has caused in their lives and plans for their future in vitro fertilization process. Luckily, professionals throughout the reproductive medicine field have kept their eyes on the pandemic and can drop some knowledge on its impact on the industry as a whole.
Many couples have been considering in vitro fertilization for a while now, but potentially see the ongoing pandemic and its economic impact as a massive hurdle not worth crossing anytime soon. However, the experts who have been thoroughly inspecting the entire situation believe that prepared parents and surrogates shouldn’t just drop their plans entirely.
Especially with the fantastic surrogate benefits, our mothers can enjoy proper health treatment regardless of the current events. For intended parents, financial stability and mental health are crucial considerations for jump-starting the process. The entire surrogacy process takes over a year to complete from searching for an ideal surrogate to the childbirth and legal processing in between, so those interested should not lose hope.
The very sudden and devastating impact of COVID-19 on a global scale and in the United States has made both intended parents and their surrogate mothers panic. With many surrogates expecting and giving birth in the middle of this pandemic, legal and health concerns are taking over the narrative.
For surrogate mothers expecting, the team at Angels Creation Reproductive Center is working around the clock to ensure your safety and health throughout the entire process regardless of the pandemic. Our insurance and VIP treatment of surrogates is more crucial than ever. We will work on a case-by-case basis with mothers to make the entire birthing process painless and as minutely impacted by the virus’s grasp on the world as possible. Your surrogate benefits remain in place, and we look forward to helping you through your birth.
However, for intended parents, the impact is a lot more sporadic compared to that on the expecting mothers. Mainly for international parents, travel bans and restrictions have changed the direction of the entire process for many families. If you are in this situation as an intended parent, our legal team is here to help you get exceptions for travel and make everything go as smoothly as possible.
Rest assured that the pandemic will not as drastically impact our process as it may seem from the surface. From those considering IVF as their childbirth solution to those already expecting, we have you covered through it all. Contact us today to find out more about how we’re here to help.
